Windows 10: Windows 10 Photos problems (fixes? not alternatives)

    Windows 10 Photos problems (fixes? not alternatives)


    It looks nice and I like that it plays gifs, there's a few things that is bugging me about this app.

    They changed mousescroll to scrolling next/previous instead of zoom. I use a Logitech mouse with Setpoint installed and because of Setpoint smooth scroll, it scrolls through several photos on one scroll. Turning smooth scroll off, it doesn't always scroll next when the mousewheel "clicks". Another thing with my Logitech mouse is that I can't use the forward/backward buttons. They function as left click. Double click any and it zooms in. I can't change Setpoint settings per app because Photos isn't really a typical exe app like Notepad.

    The last thing is that it seems to sharpen the photos even when I turned auto adjustments off. Compare Photos to Firefox and even Windows Photo Gallery and you'll see.

    So far, Windows Photo Gallery seems like a good alternative, except it doesn't play gifs (unless you click next frame really fast).

    I'm guessing there are no fixes for these?

    Will the following setup eliminate the issues you mentioned ?

    Use Windows Photo Gallery to open still images and Internet Explorer to open Gif files.
    That was my setup until Windows 10 installed.
    Phots is by default set to open gif files, but you can change that.

    I was hoping to fix the issues so I can uninstall Live Essentials.

    If you want to uninstall Windows Essentials, then may I suggest you restore Windows Photo Viewer ?

    I know that does not solve you problem , but it's better to have 2 programs running correctly than to have one program (Photos) which seems to have issues with your mouse.
